The russian league is unfortunately not that exciting. It also is becoming weaker with only ten teams left for the highest division. It has dwindled to mediocrity with only two good teams that can compete at the top of european competitions. Proof is Yenisey not qualifying for the champions league group stage. Such a far cry from the men's league.

In the league Krasnoyarsk is on the same height in the table currently as Kazan and Moscow. So we have to wait, how this proceeds - and the surprise team Maritza Plovdiv, which eliminated them from CL, can be considered as dark horse there and we will see, how they perform in pool stage now.

I want to agree but the Russian Federation did offer Volero Zurich to play in the Russian League. That tells us how much the league declined from its glory years. If I am to hazard a guess. Saratov and Odintsovo are potential teams that could breathe new life to this lifeless league. Their success is the key to reviving the interest to women's volleyball in Russia. I am not saying it's dead but I could live without this league until the playoffs. Any competitive rivalry that could spring out from these teams is a nice change from what has been expected.

So Odintsovo lost all the 4 "big matches" against the big teams in the league for the first round. After a very strong start... they faltered. I wonder if the other weaker teams could see through their game. Pankova plays really well when she's not under pressure but the moment the pass is not good... she becomes very predictable. Her reverse setting really... I feel like that needs work the most. Everyone can tell where she's going.

Anyway...

I am particularly impressed with Urarlochka's Romanova. I think with Karpol... Let's hope she becomes fine-tuned to the fast game that this team is good with. Russia could be hoping for this girl to mature. She doesn't seem athletic when you look at her physique but she is sneakily agile. She plays enough with the middle blockers which is something noteworthy. Urachloka's passing was terrible but she seems okay and not nervous. Still not as strong as Startseva but maybe that could be worked upon in the future.
